Hehe that may be true however New Zealand was home to Haast's Eagle the species was the largest eagle known to have existed, 22-33lb in weight it hunted Ostrich sized birds.

It's dead and fossilised yet the Kiwi still plods happily through the forests.


Its all about the long game.

Hahaha I think we've successfully hijacked yet another thread.

Don't pay any mind to him, JOC. That picture looks alot more like his country's army as opposed to ours.

-I don't want to join the US military or FFL simply because there is to much structure and to many rules. Same with a mainstream pmc.
-I understand I'm possibly throwing my life away, especially considering I get good grades and probably had a future.
-I understand the conditions in the places I'll most likely end up are terrible
-I'd rather die than go to jail in some 3rd world
-I don't have any mental problems and I'm physically fit
-I'd never be happy with a normal job
-My dad left me (when I was a baby. I never new him, so i really don't care), and my mom died in a car crash 2 years ago (living with an aunt and uncle, they treat me well and everything) so i don't have any family that would be sad if i die, or at least that would be genuinely sad.
-I'm doing this for the adventure it would offer, don't judge me
-I don't play call of duty or anything like that so don't say "you kids need to stop playing video games and grow up" like I've seen on other posts like this

So, any companies I should join? I live in the US, but I understand it will probably be in another country. If there's any advice or points you'd like to raise, go ahead I'd actually appreciate it. Thanks!

What do you mean by "too much structure" or "too many rules"?

I interpret this as you either don't want to have to follow orders or you want a license to kill...correct me if I am wrong.

If all else fails, you could simply volunteer to fight with the Peshmerga against ISIS. I'm sure they will still be fighting then and at least it will be for a good cause. No rules really, no structure, and you would be killing terrible human beings...just don't get captured. I'm sure it would give you all the adventure you're looking for.

It's a joke with your country mates , I know the sleep with boots in sands in rain and snow, waking up with explosion and the commander's anger.

See I interpret "too much structure" or "too many rules" as being the exuberance of youth because at 15 and 16 I had just that opinion myself and in many ways I still have it only now I have learned to control it better.

Essentially he has the same attitude I had when I applied to the RFC and that lasted about 4 days after I arrived at RFC, reality set in and the best piece of advice my father gave me came to the fore, "Never be first or last and never volunteer, just shut up follow instructions and do everything asked as best you can", once I realised following that bit of advice was about the only way I was going to get through the course I changed.

Essentially as much as he may not like it he is a kid (and I do not mean that in a bad way as were all kids just the same) and has the same attitude and damn near every kid before and since.
